* Kurt Russell's character in ''Film/{{Soldier}}'', along with everyone else in his unit, was taken by the military as an infant and raised to be little more than an obedient weapon. He has '''''no''''' social skills whatsoever, and barely speaks excepts when giving a one or two word reply to someone else.

He has '''''no''''' social skills whatsoever, and barely speaks excepts when giving a one or two word reply to someone else. He addresses everybody he speaks to as "Sir", no matter who they are because that's all he knows. While waiting for orders, his entire platoon sit bolt-upright on their beds in the barracks doing absolutely nothing. Flashbacks to their training days showed that any one of them that couldn't be turned into a human robot that did nothing but follow orders was summarily shot by an officer or beaten to death by his comrades.

** There is a darker side to it: Sosuke is a ChildSoldier who grew up in a thinly veiled {{Expy}} of Afghanistan, and has at age 16 already spent six years of his life on campaign. It is also heavily implied that he was sexually abused. That is the lens he views the world through. Sosuke was only chosen as Chidori's bodyguard because he was the only candidate with the necessary combat skills who could fit into a high-school environment (anyone else would be in their late twenties at least), and treats life as an ongoing combat situation because... well, that is what his entire life has been.

* In the AlexVerus novels it's revealed that [[spoiler: Alex himself]] suffers from this. When he loses his powers briefly in ''Cursed'' it's revealed that he has serious trouble making logical connections and can barely walk straight without magical guidance.

* The first ''Film/{{Hitman}}'' movie shows 47 to be worldly enough to function on his own just fine, but he's asexual, almost robotic in terms of personality, and unable to relate to people in a benign context. It's consistent enough with his characterization in the source material, but the games don't really get into what his personal dealings off the job are like (and in all media, much to his benefit, people rarely seem to take special notice the silent, imposing bald chap with the nice duds and [[HighlyVisibleNinja visible barcode on back of his head]]).

* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'': Erina has a sense of taste best described as the "tongue of God". This, along with the training provided by her family, has made her a fix-star in the culinary world at age 16, already raking in millions in consulting fees. However, she needs assistance to perform basic tasks like buying her favorite manga and doing laundry, has never even heard of mass-produced snack foods and doesn't understand why people do things like visit the beach and go on dates.

** Which destroyed her intuitive combat abilities. Only after a lot of training and a lethal ordeal ([[spoiler: being killed, then revived by ComicBook/LadyShiva]]) does she begin to regain her talents.

* Sheldon from ''TheBigBangTheory'' has, as he puts it "a working knowledge of the ''important'' things in the universe"... which apparently does not include driving a car.
** [[BlatantLies Justified]] in that [[InsaneTrollLogic cars do not seem to be a frequent transportation method in most of our solar system or of our universe.]]
*** Nevermind that he was quite capable of driving Penny to the hospital, except for running a red light because Penny told him to, he doesn't seem to actually have any problems driving.
*** It's not that he isn't capable of driving, but he's just so ridiculously paranoid that if he drove on a regular basis, he'd be gray by 30.
